Default Replacing a rear turn signal on a Fatboy

I have an 03 and I backed in to my wife's vehicle and broke my turn signal. I am not seeing how to remove it, and where is the best place to get a replacement?

It unbolts on the inside of the fender. Youa re going to ahve to unplug it and pull the connector off the end or xclip the wires to get it through the hole in the fender.

I added more. The wiring plugs in under the rear brake light lens.

Here's a picture of me unplugging the right and left turn signal wires, from the tail light. I clipped the ends off and re-soldered them back together when I was done putting on new rear signals.

Yea, HD doesn't put connectors on the wiring when you buy a new turn signal. You have to cut the old one off and splice it onto the new turn signal wiring.
